Two of our Career Advisory Council members were recognized for their achievements in the San Antonio Business Journal this month.

Dr. Gerald “Jerry” Wilmink, the CEO of WiseWear was named “Top Tech-preneur” for this year’s Tech Flash Titans Awards. The awards will be given out Dec. 9 at the McNay Museum.

“When you do what you love, you never have to work a day in your life,” Dr. Wilmink said.

Guillermo Vela, CEO and co-founder of Nebulab, was recognized for his company's data management tool for scientists.

“Scientists are some of the hardest working people I know, and they are working on some of the hardest problems known today," Vela said. "Being able to find or validate a piece of data in the lab shouldn’t be one of them. We need to make their life a little easier by giving scientists the data management tools they need."

Both Vela and and Wilmink have been active members of the Career Advisory Council, a council of biomedical leaders in San Antonio who provide professional development and career advice for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

“We are so excited to have two of San Antonio’s brightest entrepreneurs as part of the council, it’s been incredible to see them mentoring students and giving them advice about how to find careers in the entrepreneurship field,” said Dr. Teresa Evans, director of the Office of Career Development at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
